Thank you so much for your interest in the Art to Change the World mission. The purpose of our events and exhibitions is to invoke positive discussion, reflection and action and to nurture an emphatic, socially-aware and action-oriented community. We look forward to meeting you. Barbara Bridges, Director


Layl McDill Device Persuasive Technologies
Do you feel a loss of control and/or feelings of timelessness when using the Internet or Smartphone?,  Do you find yourself seeking more stimulating/interesting (e.g., exciting) material or content on the Internet or Smartphone? , Are you using the Internet/Smartphone as a way of escaping from problems or relieving a bad mood, (e.g., boredom, frustration, anxiety or depression)?  These are three of the questions on the Virtual Addiction Test created by David Greenfield, who runs the Center for Internet and Technology Addiction.   So many of us will answer yes to these questions and so many of us have some range of device addiction to deal with in our lives.  If we arent dealing with it ourselves it is likely that our children and teenagers are.


We will start with a conversation about our own personal relationship to our devices- What would you like to change. What is positive about such things as social media and other smart phone aps?  What are the negatives?  How do you feel different after too much device time?  Then we will get away from the virtual world and experience hands on COLOR in the form of polymer clay.  Learn a few step by step techniques that you can use to create a small sculpture of your own Device Monster.  This creature will then be taken home and baked and set in a place where it can remind you what you dont want to become when you get sucked into the virtual world.  Two hour workshop
